Charlotte McGuire Education Scholarship Programs - Undergraduate and Graduate Nursing Students Awards
 
AHNA Awards Nomination/Application Form

The Charlotte McGuire Scholarship Program (CMGSP) was established in 1986 through a gracious gift to the American Holistic Nurses Association. Since 1987, AHNA nurses in pursuit of their professional education have been assisted by this program. These  awards celebrate the commitment of nurses to a holistic path, and are presented at AHNA's annual conference held each year in June. Since 1997, more than $30,000 has been awarded.

Named in honor of the founder of AHNA, the Charlotte McGuire Scholarship Program is made possible through the generous tax deductible donations of AHNA members, friends and benefactors. The purpose of this awards is to recognize and celebrate nurses in an undergraduate or graduate academic setting dedicated to a practice of holistic nursing.
